Pet Adoption with ASAP Rescue
In November of 2010, the owners of Petland in The Village of East Side developed and implemented a rescue only format for their Petland Store in East Liberty. The program was called, A.S.A.P. for Animal Shelter Adoption Program. The store worked with shelters and rescue groups as an outlet for puppies, kittens, dogs, cats and bunnies in need of forever homes. Being housed at Petland provided these pets with additional visibility to the public, helping them find homes faster.
The success that the Animal Shelter Adoption Program experienced over the years eventually blossomed into what has now become ASAP Rescue Inc. A 501(c)3 Non-Profit pet rescue. Petland Village of East Side is proud to partner with ASAP Rescue to make rescue pets available to their customers.
ASAP cares about all of our animals, even after they’ve left our doors and found forever homes through pet adoption. What does this mean? All the animals in our pet adoption program are vaccinated, dewormed, checked by a Veterinarian, and spayed or neutered before leaving the store. By ensuring the health of our animals during the adoption process, we set them off on a healthy path to a long and happy life. Customers also receive 20% off all items purchased from Petland at the time of adoption and a complimentary office visit to the Point Breeze Veterinary Clinic. In addition, all animals in our pet adoption program are microchipped and registered with the Petkey Protection Program, giving peace of mind and helping prevent a runaway pet from ending up on the street or in a shelter.
